The Orion Family of Substation Automation Platforms and I/O perform an expanding array of automation and security applications in electric utility substations, with minimal setup and maintenance. A single Orion can replace multiple legacy boxes in a substation, reducing hardware, design, wiring, and panel costs.
A Hot Active – Standby Redundancy capability is now available for the OrionLX and OrionLXm. This new design simplifies operation and diagnostics in multiple redundant substation automation and SCADA applications.
NovaTech Orion I/O™ is an extension of the family of OrionLX™ Automation Platforms for substation automation and incorporates the same security features, software tools and “NCD” configuration as the OrionLX. It is a rack-mountable I/O assembly with four slots—A, B, C, and D—that can be filled with any combination of I/O cards: currently 16-Point Discrete Input Card,
NovaTech now offers complete packaged solutions for pole top mounting to support distribution automation applications. Solutions are engineered and packaged per customer specification and can include a user-specified enclosure, locking door with door switch, radio and associated distribution sensors.
NovaTech, in partnership with Caral Soluciones Energeticas (Peru) donated OrionLX Substation Automation Platform equipment that will assist students and teachers in the development of new ecosystems through simulation and modern technology.
At DistribuTECH 2017, NovaTech is exhibiting the new Orion I/O™ for substations. It delivers NERC CIP-compliant security, the highest I/O density (up to 64 in 2 RU) and the lowest cost per point (under $20). Orion I/O is a member of the OrionLX™ family, which means the right combination of flexibility and ease-of-use.
Rep. Kevin Yoder (3rd Congressional District of Kansas) presented NovaTech a letter of recognition from and an American flag that flew over the Capitol. This award was in recognition of shipping over 20,000 American manufactured products worldwide.
With the rapid adoption of the IEC 61850 standard by many US-based utilities, Distributed Event Recorders are becoming easier to create. Bruce’s presentation explains why the application of fault recorders could…
The NovaTech Orion WEBserver uses open-source graphics development, a pre-defined library of faceplates, a tiled alarm annunciator and simple setup to provide small and medium-sized utilities with a robust, low-cost SCADA solution for substation monitoring.
